York Peppermint Patty Rice Krispie Treats

About 6 months to a year after I got married my husband and I were driving up to Idaho and I started getting car sick. This was not usual for me (but apparently I get motion sickness now...). We stopped at a gas station to fill up and so I went in to see if I could get anything to help me feel better and for some reason I reay wanted a York peppermint patty. This was again very strange because I remember my Mom eating York peppermint patties as a kid for her treat and thinking that was NOT a treat. They weren't even that good!

Boy was I wrong. These things are delicious! And, my body must have known that peppermint is a natural remedy for queasiness because I ate my king size peppermint patty super slowly in the car and it make me feel better. I swear it took me an hour to eat one king size peppermint patty but it worked! 

Due to my new found love for peppermint patties and the success of the delicious Reese's Rice Krispie Treats I made, I just had to give York peppermint patty rice krispie treats a try too. I am so glad I did! My husband still likes the Reeses's rice krispies the best but I think the York peppermint patty rice krispies are my favorite.
